Instant Pot BBQ Pork

BBQ pork is one of my family’s favorite summer meals. I love it because I usually make it with a slow cooker. It’s easy to make and keeps the house cool. Since I have an instant pot now, I decided a needed instant pot bbq pork recipe to make in it.

It only takes about 5 minutes to get this ready for the instant pot and takes about 100 minutes to cook. This is much less time than in the slow cooker, but longer than most of the instant pot recipe I have been making.

This takes longer because it is a large amount of meat you are cooking. We are talking 3-4 pounds here. It turned out wonderful and a great recipe to use my instant pot for.

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-2 cups barbecue sauce
